Very pleased with this product. Plenty of room for two men with gear and sleeping bags. Especially liked the center height. We put a tarp underneath just to add protection, but the construction of the bottom is very durable anyway. We didn't have rain or wind so I can't say about those, but I am...

Bought as a starter tent for my two young grandsons to see how they take to camping. Haven't assembled it yet. For casual usage only. Appears durable enough to last a few seasons with reasonable care. Not too heavy or too big for out of car camping.

I used this tent last month for the first time. I had set it up in the backyard before I left to see how difficult it was for one man to set up. Not that tough. It took about twenty minutes to get it done. The rainfly was short, so I added a small tarp over the top. Good thing, it really rained hard that night, and I had no water in the tent what-so-ever. I'm happy with the purchase so far. I'll write again after I've used it four or five more times. It could use a second door, but it's a nice tent for two. More that two with gear could get crowded. I think I'm going to seam seal the entire tent & fly before going out again, just to be sure. It is a car camping tent, too heavy to carry.

I was pleasantly surprised by this tent when I set it up. A few nice little details and everything looks well constructed. For anyone looking for a basic car camping tent that is a step above what your going to find at the big box stores this is a good option to consider.

This is an average quality tent for the price. I would consider it a good value for those who infrequently camp. It is slightly better than a standard Coleman. The downfalls of this tent are the zippers are low quality and the tent fabric is also low quality. Yes, the poles as mentioned in a prior review are fiberglass and will break if not careful but at this price point these are standard issues with all tents.

So I bought this tent for my daughter it was here first, and it was love at first site. Price is good it is the typical two pole free standig design and very roomy, she kept saying how kuch she love it. That was last summer, thsi summer she was campped out on the beach in Hoker Alaska, they had a we bit of and wham, poles broke. This was only her second time using it! Yes it was guyed down, ti somply would not hold up. In truth the problem is any time you have a freestanding tent you arelalread placing stress on the poles by bending them, couple that with fiber glass and you have recipe for disaster. This tent is consctructed nicley but the poles are not good, DO NOT BUY TENTS WITH FIBERGLASS POLES! I have two other tents bith have aluminum and work great.

The seams are not sealed. It does have a polyurethane coating and the rain fly will also protect from moisture.

The fly is factory sealed and urethane-coated. The sidewalls that are exposed to the weather are also. The floor tub is woven poly tarp material, which, although heavy, is waterproof and rugged. In several days of wet camping, it leaked a small of water around the rear window zipper, but certainly was not flooded. It was far dryer in these conditions than my other tent, a two-person Eureka Apex. The size and vertical walls make it simple to stay out of contact with the fly, which can lead to getting wet from condensation.
